When play with 3 players or 4 players, in the rule, it states you must remove 6 or 2 cards, respectively, "without" looking at it.

However, it adds a lot of uncertainty more into the game as it already chaotic somehow. How do you think if we make those removed cards public? Will it make more sense? Thanks a lot for your input.

I would never look. When we play we don't remove any cards, we just leave the extra cards 'undealt'. Starting the game with revealed information about which cards are not showing up in future deals will slightly change things. Best to just leave it alone.

Not looking is the only way for us.

Is that the only bankruptcy card? Is 29 the higest?

Love the unkown.

Another vote of no peek. After the bidding round is done, you SHOULD know what was taken out...then the second part starts (muhahaha) when you don't know if the 15's are even in the deck.

LOVE this game.

Absolutely. Leave the excluded cards random. A fun game. Fast play and easy to learn.

Thanks a lot for all your input.

Tried more several three-player games, now I totally agree it's no need to change the rule. It works very well

The other detail is if you're going to show the cards, you may as well strip them either off the top or bottom (i.e. 1-n or m-30), since the cards are strictly ordered anyhow.

I concur that this is a silly plan: revealing them does odd things to the game, I'd think.
